Manage your workshop and finance enough entertainment at the party and your talent will be the talk of the town when the fireworks above the palace begin.

Notes From The O.C.D.
A discussion about the need for a searchable currency database. Type in a game title and out comes the amount of money, denominations, and name of currency for the game. Very useful if you want to replace existing crappy paper money with nicer coins or poker chips.

I'm sure there are some goofs in there somewhere
I mention my grandparents both hail from Transylvania; somehow I lumped my Mother in with them as well. She was born in Gary, Indiana.
